Beauty the Winner

As ever with the DVC, it was very much a case of "It'll all be alright on the night" at this year's panto.

With a week to go, Gill Hipwell's clever adaptation of "Beauty and the Beast" seemed to be a long way short of performance-ready but, as usual, everybody rallied round, learnt their lines (or at least most of them) and everything came together "beautifully".

The three performances went remarkably well and the audiences appeared to enjoy themselves; the cast certainly did! There were of course a few "mishaps" but, as Oldstager mentions in his review of the show, Denton pantos would not be the same without them.

Most important of all, in the great panto tradition, good triumphed over evil and Beauty was the winner.

Anyone for Table Tennis?

The Annual Denton Table Tennis Tournament will take place at the village hall on Friday 13th March with tables available from 7.30pm.

Bats and balls are available, entrance is free, everyone is welcome and it doesn't matter if you're not very good - most of the people who turn up only play once a year!

There is a junior section for those under 16 who fancy a go. The bar will be open as usual and the table tennis usually finishes around

For further information please contact Steve Whiteman - 788251.

Compost Recognition

The achievements of Denton's successful composting scheme were recognised at South Norfolk's recent Community Awards Evening.

As reported in Thursday's EDP, grants of £250 were made to seven community organisations to be donated to their favourite charity. Two further special grants of £100 each were also made with the Community Composting scheme taking one of them. The paper's coverage of the ceremony, held at the John Innes Centre, included a photograph of the winners with Liz Cargill and Anne Carden holding Denton's certificate.

Romance and the Rising Stars

Following the success of the first meeting of the Rising Stars Club in December another session for youngsters is to be held - on Saturday 14th February.

On that date the theme can only be "Valentines Day". Let's hope that a massacre is avoided! Further details on the DVC Page.

PBBH Success

Congratulations to the PBBH Team, winners of Saturday's annual Village Quiz Night.

Even more congratulations to the Grant Team, quizmaster Denise and her "glamorous assistant" Peter, and to everybody else involved in putting on this great event. The providers of the excellent food and the bar staff deserve our thanks. It was good to see two teams from Alburgh taking part; but perhaps just as well they did not win!

All has now been revealed. It seems that the winning team's name PBBH (Not GBH as previously announced) stands for "Powered by Blackhand". Obviously their success can be put down to a good supply of quality cyder.

Disputes about "the smallest country in Europe/The World" and "the longest river in Europe" may continue (did you know the year that Elvis died?) but the important thing is that everybody who attended had a wonderful evening. Thanks to all those involved.
